Sup guys, so as most of you know, I move around between school and work every term so I travel a lot. My old desktop pooped a while back so I've been on a laptop for a few months now. However, I was looking to build some sort of MiniITX build that's obv portable + able to play CS:GO/new mortal kombat well and with good performance. Any suggestions? Help ya boy out Edited by Guest

How small do you want your case to be? I'm using a Silverstone RVZ01B Raven case which is about as thick as the PS4 or the Xbox One but a bit taller and wider. The RVZ01B fits most if not all standard full length video cards (GTX 980, Titan, etc) save for the crazy ones like the triple fan AMD cards. If you don't like the aesthetics of the RVZ01B, Silverstone offers the Silverstone ML07 which has the same internal chassic but a plain black exterior. Size Comparison Photo (not my computer, found photo online): [img:3cksuj5b]http://cdn.overclock.net/5/5e/500x1000px-LL-5eb8772c_P1030649.jpeg[/img:3cksuj5b] My current specifications are: [i:3cksuj5b]Silverstone RVZ01B ITX Case Silverstone SX-600G SFX PSU (600W 80 Plus Gold) ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD ITX Motherboard Intel Core i5 3570K Quad Core CPU MSI GTX 660 2GD5/OC Video Card Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3-1600 Memory Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM HDD Corsair SP120 Quiet Fans (2x) Corsair H75 Liquid Cooler Silverstone FW121 Slim 120mm Fan [/i:3cksuj5b] [img:3cksuj5b]http://i.imgur.com/p8pQkp9.jpg[/img:3cksuj5b] [img:3cksuj5b]http://i.imgur.com/V9kvbKL.jpg[/img:3cksuj5b] Obviously, you'd probably get newer parts than mine since my computer is nearly three years old save for some recent upgrades, but the case is very small, portable, fits full length video cards, and even has space for some liquid cooling options. You could even do a full custom loop if you wanted to. The only "downside" to the Silverstone cases is that you can only fit an SFX form factor power supply, but since Silverstone has a 600W 80 Plus Gold SFX power supply, you're covered there. I don't believe you could even put anything into this case that would exceed the 600W anyway. However, the Silverstone SX600G is pretty expensive for a 600W power supply (around $120). There are other similar size cases floating around out there but Silverstone has a good reputation for build quality.

I mean I could but I think you can get better performance out of a miniITX than from a gaming laptop - also playing on a laptop isn't fun loool I hate it, need a mech keyboard!

Bear in mind that your options for an aftermarket CPU cooler are limited as there is very little room both on the board and in the case. An AIO cooler with a slim 120mm radiator would work fine (I used a Corsair H75 with a slim (15mm) 120mm fan). If you want an air cooler, I recommend a low profile cooler from Noctua, Silverstone, or Zalman. I also didn't include any case fans since the RVZ01B comes with two fairly quiet slim (15mm) 120mm case fans. If you want to reduce noise levels, finding some silent PWM 120mm fans from Noctua or Corsair would be a good idea.

You're a bro Bat, I'll have a look at that once summer starts. And yeah poops that's what I've been doing + talking to the sephington. Hopefully, I'll post a decent build here in a bit that I can tweak. If I don't have the time to build, I might just look at some premades.
